    • 5 Pages

    Abduction On November 20, 2015 I was abducted by aliens. Luckily, I was not harmed just very frightened. They were all purple with one eye and one antennae on their head. I was surrounded by them and they told me that I needed to give them all of the information I could on one of many topics.

    “A Rose for Emily,” many components that may be initially dismissed in a passage, through intelligent writing, gather a deeper meaning.

However, many features linked to Homer leave the reader asking questions of the purpose and meaning behind his character. Each interaction with his character seems purely plot driven initially, but as the story unravels, they adopt a deeper meaning, forcing the…
